A recent picture of the planet Mars has made its way on the Internet. It was taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft on October 3, 2006.

This HiRISE image shows "Victoria Crater," an impact crater at Meridiani Planum, near the equator of Mars.

There are high-resolution versions (up to 4045x5085 pixels) of this picture available. What's amazing is that the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity can be seen in this image, at roughly the "ten o'clock" position along the rim of the crater. Even its track marks are visible

I don't know if the image was Photoshopped, but it sure looks pretty.
